    Ok the top is done, i may add anothe narrow border. I also am adding Prarie points........but do you think multi color or white.

    I had to take the picture outside cause there isn't enough room in here and the wind kept blowing it so snapped these really quick :D :D

    Oh Ruth its beautiful!! I love it. I almost want to say white prairie points to pick up the other white elements of the quilt but multi color would be pretty darn cute too. Not much help huh :lol:

    See you ladies gave me an idea already. I have some of each color left so I could have every other one white and the rest all diferent colors. Does that sound ok?

    Love your quilt--makes me happy to just look at it. Multicolored points alternating with white will set it off perfectly. What a clever girl you are!

    It's wonderful! I love the zig-zag pattern in it.

    I like your idea for alternating the prairie points. Play around with it a bit...you could do one white, then two or more (different) colors, then white and one more (or less) colors than the previous 'set' --

    The colors are fabulous.

    Awesome!!! I love the colors
    I think the prairie points with the alternating white would be perfect finish. I can't wait to see it.

    It's really pretty!
    Here's a suggestion for you.
    Put on whatever color you like, finish it off and send it to me.
    Let me see up close and personal EXACTLY what it looks like and I'll tell you whether or not to change it.

    <hmm....wonder if she'll fall for it lol>

    Great quilt top! I vote for white, it will balance it and won't look as busy with the multi. When I 1st saw it, I immediately thought of prarie points as a boarder, funny, huh?

    I am going to borrow saw horses and sheets of plywood to sandwich this one. My sewing table just is to small. I have quite a bit of colored fabric left so maybe two color one white. thanks for the advice :D
